What affects the cost of a garden home or garage suite?
Because we are building on your existing property, the cost is far less than what you're used to seeing for a new home. Costs depend on the design you choose and the finishes you would like inside.
Should I consider a shipping container home instead?
Shipping container homes are significantly more expensive option that comes with an assortment of challenges. They were never designed to be homes, so they require a lot of effort to modify them into a residence.
What is the maximum size for a garage or garden suite?
We can custom-design your home as you like - the only limitations are the size of your lot and local bylaws. We will assess your property, then discuss what is possible and would work best for you.
Can you build a garage suite on my existing garage?
No. Garages are not designed and constructed to have residential suites built upon them. Existing garages are not built to residential housing and fire codes. Most existing garages are built on pads that could not sustain a garage suite and have a 2 X 4 as opposed to a 2 X 6 frame. Garage suites, in reality, are homes with garages beneath.
